26 Looking east from the public highway towards Wardlaw near the carpark at Castle Corner on a quiet day for geese - I have seen this field filled with them. I have also quite often seen deer in these fields. The water in the foreground is just a large puddle at the edge of the field.
The road here is on national cycle route 7 which takes you from Gretna to Glasgow through some beautiful Dumfriesshire, Galloway and Ayrshire countryside. I use (fairly regularly) a 20 mile cycle circuit from Dumfries down the landward road past Bankend and Caerlaverock and back up the river past Glencaple and Kelton - it is a privilege to stay in this part of the world!
